European cooperation in quality assurance in higher education – Position Statement

November 6, 2007

Response to EU-enquiry for position statement on European cooperation in quality assurance in higher education – 26 January 2005

Mrs. Patricia Bugnot, Director

European Commission

Secretariat General

B-1049 Brussels 

26 January 2005 

Proposal for a recommendation of the Council and of the European Parliament on further European cooperation in quality assurance in higher education COM(2004) 642 final – 2004/0239 (COD) 

Having received above via the Danish Ministry of Education, the Association of Danish Business Economists is responding as follows: 

The proposal for a recommendation is supported in relation to the establishment of the best possible quality assurance, however, with proper consideration for established and developing quality assurance and –improvement systems, thus securing synergy and convergence. 

Participation in the proposed initiative should rest on a voluntary basis, and not constitute any conditions for the functions and legitimacy of established and developing quality assurance and –improvement systems. 

The opportunity is hereby seized to draw the attention towards maximizing the versatility of the proposed initiative and thereby to consider the relations to the European Quality Improvement System – EQUIS. 

It should be taken into consideration that the development and implementation of the EQUIS assessment and accreditation system, has raised the quality of the European management education and thereby improved the overall European competitiveness. 

Together with the parallel associations in Finland, Norway and Sweden, the Association of Danish Business Economists is part of the advisory body for EQUIS, the European Quality Link – EQUAL, representing approx. 110.000 individual members, thus fully supporting liaison contacts to be established for joining the initiative, as outlined in above mentioned proposal for a recommendation. 

Trusting above will serve as a fruitful input to the further process, we remain 

Yours sincerely,

ASSOCIATION OF DANISH BUSINESS ECONOMISTS

Fostering entrepreneurial mind sets through education and training – Position Statement

November 6, 2007

Response to EU-enquiry for position statement on Fostering entrepreneurial mind sets through education and training – 17 February 2006

The Cabinet of Commissioner Günter Verheugen

European Commission

B-1049 Brussels 

17 February 2006 

Implementing the Community Lisbon Programme: Fostering entrepreneurial mind sets through education and training COM(2006) 33 final. 

Having received above, dated in Brussels 13.2.2006, via the Danish Ministry of Economic and Business Affairs, the Association of Danish Business Economists is responding as follows: 

The association of Danish Business Economists is supporting the issues of entrepreneurship to be included in the development of Higher Education, and  as a natural element of Continued Education and lifelong learning initiatives, with reference to COM(2005) 548 final – 2005/0221(COD) – dated 10.11.2005. 

We draw the attention to the importance of relevant subjects to be included in the curriculum, alternatively as optional possibilities as part of the curriculum composition, with subsequent inclusion in the credit accumulation. In this context subjects concerning entrepreneurship should not be positioned as parallel activities outside the study schedule.  

Practical elements of external character in relation to academic issues, such as:

·         advisory services,

·         venture capital and financing,

·         tax regulation, ref. COM(2005) 152

·         patent application and protection,

·         general barriers and incentives for initialization and growth, 

should be part of the initiative portfolio. 

Financing procedures – individually as well as institutionally – should be observed with due regard to the GATS / WTO regulations.  

Incentives deriving from personal taxation regulations should be taken into consideration. 

Further we recommend you to visit www.fuhu.dk

and www.idea-denmark.dk 

which together with www.venturecup.dk

may supply you with valuable input. 

Trusting the above will serve as a fruitful contribution to the further process, we remain,

The modernisation agenda for universities – Position Statement

November 6, 2007

Response to EU-enquiry for position statement on the modernisation agenda for universities – 5 July 2006

Mr. Jordi Ayet Puigarnau, Director 

European Commission

Secretariat General

B-1049 Brussels 

5 July 2006 

Communication from the Commission to the Council and the European Parliament Delivering on the modernisation agenda for universities: Education, Research and Innovatoin, Brussels 10.5.2006 COM(2006) 208 final – 9166/06 – EDUC 103 – RECH 115 – COMPET 120 

Having received above via the Danish Ministry of Education, Danish Business Economists – identity shift from CIVILØKONOMERNE to C3 organisation – is responding as follows: 

We support research funding based on outcome and objectively defined criteria for relevance according to trustworthy quality assurance systems. Quality assurance and accreditation initiatives separately constitute areas of great importance to be developed. 

Long term research initiatives, exemplified by the Danish “KINO” initiative, constituting an important element of the Danish globalisation strategy under the auspices of the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation, could serve as inspiration for development of European globalisation strategies. Thus elements from the humanities and from the intercultural sciences could prove valuable in addition to the traditional core fields of technical science and applied economics.  

Concerning internationalisation we strongly support existing and developing strategic alliances and consortia, especially in relation to the actual developments of WTO and GATS. 

Subversion of traditional barriers to co-financing of cross national research initiatives should be intensified to support cooperation between universities and business schools. 

We strongly support the development of student mobility within the European Union as well as internationally, thus enabling national grants, loans and individual student funding in general to be fully portable. 

Similarly the mobility for researchers and educational staff should be promoted through attractive career and remuneration schemes. 

Trusting that the above will serve as fruitful input for the further process, we remain 

Yours sincerely,

Modernising education and training – Position Statement

November 6, 2007

Response to EU-enquiry for position statement on modernising education and training – 9 December 2005

Mr. Jordi Ayet Piugarnau,

Director

European Commission

Secretariat General

B-1049 Brussels 

9 December 2005

Communication from the Commission: “Modernising education and training: a vital contribution to prosperity and social cohesion in Europe – Draft 2006 joint progress report of the Council and the Commission on the implementation of the Education and training 2010 work programme”. COM(2005) 549 final – 13415/05 – EDUC 155 – SOC 389.

Having received above via the Danish Ministry of Education, the Association of Danish Business Economists is responding as follows:

Concerning above, chapter 3.2. – Strengthening the implemantation of education and training 2010, and chapter 3.2.2. – At European Level, it is recommended to note that the statements concerning…reaching agreement on a Eurpean Qualifications Framework (EQF)…is in line with statements from EU-Commissioner Jan Figel concerning Quality Development.

In his address to the EFMD Annual Conference in Brussels, June 2005, EU-Commissioner Jan Figel expressed points of view concerning the European quality improvement initiatives as follows:

“For its part, the Commission has proposed a Council and Parliament Recommendation on the strengthening of cooperation in quality assurance in higher education. Moreover, encouraged by the successful experience of EQUIS in Management Education, the Commission supports pilot schemes for the establishment of European quality labels in various study fields such as Engineering or Chemistry.

With respect to the European Qualification Framework (EQF), Ministers in Bergen endorsed a proposal for higher education qualifications. It will serve as a common reference for all various types of first, bachelor-level degrees, for masters and doctorates as well as for short vocational qualifications typical of areas such as management, accounting, tourism, etc.

I would like to take this opportunity to encourage all those who offer higher education qualifications in management to make sure they are in line with these reference levels. This will strengthen internal coherence in the European Higher Education Area.”

Consequently we seize the opportunity to draw your attention to this parallel of interest, as we also recommend you to visit EQUIS presentation together with www.efmd.org for further introduction to the EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) initiative. 

Trusting above will serve as a fruitful input to the further process, we remain

European Charter for Researchers – Position Statement

November 6, 2007

Response to EU-enquiry for position statement on European Charter for Researchers – 27 July 2005

Mrs. Patricia Bugnot, Director

European Commission

Secretariat General

B-1049 Brussels 

27 July 2005 

Commission Recommendation on the European Charter for Researchers and on a Code of Conduct for the recruitment of Researchers C(2005) 5786 final. 

Having received above via the Danish Ministry for Science, Technology and Innovation, issued by Commissioner Janez Potochnik, and forwarded under your covering note of 15 March 2005 – 7321/05 RECH 57, the Association of Danish Business Economists is responding as follows: 

Referring to Commission Document C(2005) 152 final, including input from

http://europa.eu.int/comm/research/conferences/2004/univ/speakers_en.html

a substantial part of European universities and research environments are depending on public funding and administration. Thus it is questionable to which extent they may be ready to meet the intensified global fight for resources, talents and influence. Multiplicity in any respect will increasingly be needed with specific focus on cooperation with private enterprises, including financing models. 

Development of sustainable partnerships between private enterprises and universities / research environments will be of great importance for the exchange and mobility of research capacities together with the development of study programmes and curricula, thus meeting the demands of society in general.  

Such development processes are depending on long term commitments and investments, and the attraction and allocation of resources will be depending on mutual partnership interests together with attractive incentives. 

Incentives of relevance for sustainable partnerships on corporate level as well as on individual level could be developed, based on taxation and fiscal instruments – especially in states and regions with substantial corporate financial burdens. 

The Commission’s request to the member states to encourage development of sustainable partnerships between private enterprises and universities / research environments by means of taxation and fiscal instruments as stated in above C(2005) 152 final, is hereby supported to be included in the working process of the European Charter for Researchers. 

Trusting above will be forwarded for relevant handling and serve as fruitful input to the further process, we remain

Brussels 

25 February 2004 

Communication from the Commission – Europe and Basic Research. 

In reply to request for comments on above communication marked and dated 5598/04 RECH 9 Brussels 22 January 2004, the Association of Danish Business Economists is responding as follows concerning the attached Commission Document COM (2004) 9 final: 

The Association of Danish Business Economists is hereby supporting the initiatives launched during the Danish EU Presidency calling for the establishment of a European Basic Research Fund in conjunction with the 7th Framework Programme on the Union’s Research activities.

The Association of Danish Business Economists will be ready for further discussion of and engagement in supporting the development of above subjects. 

Sincerely,

Investments in Research – an Action Plan for Europe – Position Statement

November 5, 2007

Response to EU-enquiry for position statement on “Investments in Research – an Action Plan for Europe” – 1 July 2003

The European Commission

Mr. Isi Saragossi

SDME 9/37

B-1049 Brussels   

1 July 2003   

Communication from the EU Commission on “Investments in Research” – an Action Plan for Europe. 

In reply to request for comments on above communication marked and dated COM (2003) 226 final, Brussels 30.4.2003, the Association of Danish Business Economists is responding as follows:

Financing As the European business structure comprises a majority of so called small and medium sized enterprises, public funding will play a major role in financing the university system. Thus the fulfillment of the Barcelona target of 3% of GNP should take this into consideration. The financing schemes should be developed into long term schedules with incentives for an operating time span of e.g. 3 – 5 years covering both the research and the education activities. The basic principle of the publicly financed ordinary and continued education to be a free commodity should be isolated from the GATS-discussion of the growing market for services. This leaves only the privately financed continued education activities to be covered by the GATS-negotiations, as underlined by the Danish Minister of Education. Stimulation of funding from private enterprises could be inspired by a tax exemption scheme with a deduction of e.g. 150% for direct investment in research activities as well as for general donations.

Quality – To secure the best possible level of university based research- and learning processes and thereby securing optimal utilization of investments, quality development and improvement through accreditation and assessment schemes should be enhanced.  Following initiatives can be mentioned: 

  • EQUIS (European Quality Improvement System) in combination with EQUAL (European Quality Link). 
  • EUA (European University Association – former CRE)
  • AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business)
  • AMBA (The Association of MBA’s)

Above institutions are not excluding local initiatives. However, as universities are operating in an international environment, subsequent quality performance initiatives should correspond to this profile. 

Internationalisation – With increased international interaction and dependence, optimal size and volume should be developed – locally as well as between institutions. As an example of international network the Universitas 21 initiative (U21) could be investigated. International networking will support the fulfillment of local needs for knowledge where focus should be set on continued education initiatives. 

Continued education initiatives – The need for continued education programmes and corresponding research initiatives is expected to be intensified due to an expected increase in the demand for documentation of maintenance of professional skills underlined by statements as authorized / licensed / chartered. Consequently the universities should be able to fulfill this development in compliance with the general research based learning process profiles. 

Management – To the extend universities are functioning according to governmental legislation it will be imperative to secure decentralised and independent managerial conditions – preferably matching the conditions of the surrounding corporate community. Legislative actions across Europe are underlining this demand. The present development in Denmark could be used as reference.

Relations to enterprises – Cooperation between the universities and the corporate community should be enhanced by professional and research engagements. Benefits and obligations from these activities should be divided practically between institution and individual. The question of publishing versus patenting should be discussed to minimize the risk of patents’ impediment to the exchange of research results.

Access to research results – Access to research results should be enhanced. Students and enterprises should be given optimal conditions to utilize front line knowledge. Consequently investments schemes should focus not only on research activities, but also on the application by student- and corporate communities.

Reference to specific initiatives Please visit www.industrialphd.dk to search for information about the Industrial Ph.D. initiative focusing on the traditional research oriented approach.  Parallel to this you will find information about the Doctor Business (DBA) initiative at www.dba.cbs.dk focusing on applied and practical approach to research objectives. Both modes to be on equal academic level, but with different target groups of researchers.

Convergence As an overall issue, convergence should be established between the nationally oriented focus on education as per Article 149, par. 1, in Chapter 3, Education, Vocational Training and Youth in the 2. Treaty establishing the European Community: 

”…while fully respecting the responsibility of the Member States for the content of teaching and the organisation of education systems…”

 and the new strategic goal as stated in “The way forward” in the Presidency conclusions from the Lisbon European Council 23 and 24 March 2000: 

“…to become the most competitive and dynamic knowledgebased economy in the world capable of sustainable economic growth with more and better jobs and greater social cohesion…” 

“…by better policies for the information society and R&D, as well as stepping up the process of structural reform…” 

The Bologna Declaration in its cross European function, not only comprising the EU member states, underlines the necessity for a thorough focus on above to secure an optimal development of the European educational systems. The Association of Danish Business Economists will be ready for further discussion of and engagement in supporting the development of above subjects.

Consultation process on Increasing Human Resources for Science and Technology.

In reply to request for comments on above communication dated Brussels 28/07/2003, the Association of Danish Business Economists is responding as follows:

Entry to careers in science

Early enhancement of high school and gymnasium students to choose study lines with focus on scientific subjects. This issue could be handled through marking and evaluating not only on single subjects, but also on combinations of subjects with scientific focus. Contact for further information on this issue: The Ministry for Science, Technology and Innovation, Copenhagen att: Mr. René Bugge Bertramsen, General Director – rbb@vtu.dk

Internationalisation

With increased international interaction and dependence, optimal size and volume should be developed – locally as well as between institutions. As an example of international network the Universitas 21 initiative (U21) could be investigated. International networking will support the fulfillment of local needs for knowledge where focus should be set on continued education initiatives. Please visit www.universitas21.com for further information.

Continued education initiatives

The financing schemes should be developed into long term schedules with incentives for an operating time span of e.g. 3 – 5 years covering both the research and the education activities.

Stimulation of funding from private enterprises could be inspired by a tax exemption scheme with a deduction of e.g. 150% for direct investment in resear-ch activities as well as for general donations. Tax exemption or -differentiation schemes could also comprise personal mobility incentives for researchers.

Management

To the extend universities are functioning according to governmental legislation it will be imperative to secure decentralised and independent managerial conditions – preferably matching the conditions of the surrounding corporate community. Legislative actions across Europe are underlining this demand. The present development in Denmark could be used as reference.

Having received above, dated in Brussels 10.11.2005, via the Danish Ministry of Education, the Association of Danish Business Economists is responding as follows: 

The association of Danish Business Economists is supporting the issues of entrepreneurship to be included in the development of lifelong learning initiatives. This also comprises the inclusion hereof in relation to Higher and Continued Education. 

We draw the attention to the financing procedures – individually as well as institutionally – to be included with due regard to the GATS / WTO regulations, specifically comprising  “Adult Education”. Incentives deriving from personal taxation regulations should be taken into consideration.

European Qualifications Framework for Lifelong Learning – Position Statement

November 4, 2007

Response to EU-enquiry for position statement on European Qualifications Framework for Lifelong Learning – 10. January 2006: 

The Cabinet of Commissioner Jan Figel

European Commission

B-1049 Brussels 

Sent by e-mail to: EQF@cec.eu.int 

10 January 2006 

Commission Staff Working Document – Towards a European Qualifications Framework for Lifelong Learning. SEC(2005)957. 

Having received above via the Danish Ministry of Education, the Association of Danish Business Economists is responding as follows: 

Basically it is necessary to eliminate barriers and discrepancies between national education- and qualification systems. However, it is important that such initiatives also involve positive effects on the development of a European accreditation system. 

European quality assurance with due regard to national initiatives, should incorporate a maximum of international reference to cover demands deriving from the globalisation – where Europe must anticipate an intensified positioning process in relation to Asia, the Americas, etc. 

Local and national quality assessment operations should be developed with international adaption and participation according to the EQF-levels as per ANNEX  2, page 41. Consequently increased international involvement should follow the academic and research based content of the EQF-levels. 

Inspiration to and participation in such construction should be based on relevant internationally operating quality assessment and accreditation schemes, e.g. AACSB and EQUIS in the business and administration sector, subsequently ABET and Washington Accord from the technical and engineering sector. Further input may be obtained from e.g. the European University Association (EUA). 

Trusting the above will serve as a fruitful input to the further process, we remain,
